Exposed masonry adds character to boutique guesthouse

Exposed masonry is one of the latest trends in modern homes, adding character by creating stunning accents that enrich the design whatever its inspiration. Bricks from Malelane Stene provide a warm, welcoming contrast to the contemporary steel and concrete architecture of Execustay Boutique Guesthouse in Nelspruit. Brick offers natural colours and textures, bestowing a sense of heritage and authenticity to the home.

It is among the most effective interpretations of Lowveld Architecture creating a residence that makes a statement. The clay brick adds atmosphere and a tactile dimension to an otherwise plain wall, while still reflecting light due to the light colours of bricks used.

Masonry walls are beautiful, durable and maintenance-free architectural features, ideally suited to a guest house that must always look its best.
